an issue that affects the entire city. one of the first things i did as supervisor was to call a hearing on how the city works on the abatement of bed bugs and on march 28th we heard from over 100 residents, advocates and affordable housing developers about the impact that this has on people's lives. so, today i'm asking you to support this legislation which would address three main issues. one, the legislation requires the city provide clear and accessible information on how to properly abate bed bug infestation and the rules and responsibilities for tenants, landlords, and pest control operators. two, in doing our due diligence we looked at what other jurisdictions have done to address this issue and decided to include them in our legislation and have decided to include in our ledthtion asian a provision in new york city administrative code. this will require a property owner or property manager to disclose to prospective tenants written disclosure of the bed bug infestation and abatement history only upon request. third, we require pest control operators to report to dph on a

often. we announced that the entire city family take time to think about whether the existing laws should apply to the new activity or whether we should create new policies and regulations that apply more appropriately to the activity. we look forward to tackling that with the working group going forward. >> how was the turnout? >> it was a pretty huge turnout. we had about 40 hosts from san francisco, probably more than that. many of them testified. it was an incredibly moving experience. i do not think i have seen a city hearing the was that emotional. people are using this income to pay property taxes if they own their home, pay off their mortgages, pay increasing rents. our cofounders could not afford their increasing rent so they blew up an air mattress in their living room and rented it out to make rent. this is incredibly important as a source of income for our hosts. if you are taxing at 15%, we need to do so thoughtfully. >> what was the treasurer's view? how is it different from yours? >> we do not know what the treasurer's view is. we would love to discuss this collabora

already has the greatest concentration of night time entertainment in the entire city. a change from non conforming to has a right for night clubs won't allow the night clubs to be any noisier. down zoning the neighbors will not stop them from complaining. the sally proposal that cory presented violates fundamental principles of fairness that are the basis for the western soma plan. buffers around existing clubs are impractical because they would imply to the entire mug area and drastically reduce the housing produced. the western soma plan is the first major rezoning to include the issue of entertainment. eastern neighborhoods did not even address it because as dan snyder told me in the past if they brought up entertainment it would blow the whole plan apart. they don't even address entertainment. we do. >> i want to make sure that our commissioners get a chance to ask you questions later and i think you've did a very good job of repeating what mr. teague has properly presented. >> one final paragraph. >> okay. >> the proposal before you is the best effort of the entire communi

really serious threat to the entire city. thank you. >> thank you. is there any other public comment? seeing none, public comment is now closed. [ gavel ] supervisor david campos? >> thank you very much, madame chair. and i want to thank all of the members of public who have come out to speak on this item. i also want to note that we have in the audience former supervisor tony hall and it's good to welcome a former member of this body here. i will keep my comments very brief, because i think that everything that has been said, that needs to be said about this matter has been said by the tenants themselves. and i especially wanted to thank the tenants and the residents of not just sro hotels, but different units in the city that have come forward to shed light on this issue. i also want to thank supervisor kim and her staff, who have been dealing with this issue from the moment that she got elected. and i think that this legislation is in many respects, you know, not the culmination, but it adds to the body of work that already has been done and we need to continue to monitor this. so
